The world of Ivy Shambitt could only have come from an avid imagination, and nothing truer could be said about playwright Daniel Evans.
A keen writer and lover of the arts and media, Daniel’s work and hobbies take him deep into many aspects of the arts world. Since majoring in Interdisciplinary Studies while studying Creative Industries at the Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane-born Daniel has dipped his toe in many pies, from being the Program Officer for the Brisbane Cabaret Festival to his full time job as the Arts Editor for Scene Magazine, Queensland’s leading street press. He also contributes to fringe magazine, Vulture and multimedia street magazine, Brisneyland, as well as moonlighting as a performance studies teacher.
Daniel’s first published work was the Opening a Fuzwollop’s Frame of Mind (2001) followed closely by a flurry of works including Never for Ever (2003), Holy Guacamole (2006), The Reunion, Holidayz and Ivy Shambitt and the Sound Machine.
Daniels' aim is to ‘empower and liberate young people through theatre, a goal he achieves through humour, pizzazz, imagination and a fair dose of 'kooky’.
